I've only ever used humanity for kindling at bonfires, what does it do for bosses?

In all honesty I'm surprised at how easy I've been finding this so far, certainly compared to my time with DS3. I've just made my way up to Anor Londo now and have yet to encounter anything overly frustrating (although the bit which was pitch black was a touch annoying!)

It's possible I've stumbled onto a better character build in this than I did in DS3 which may be helping!

Humanity turns you human so you can summon.

Ah okay, was it called something else in DS3? I remember summoning a few times in that but haven't needed it in this (so far!)

Beat the bell gargoyles, (with a little help from jolly cooperation,) and rang the first bell of awakening. :D

I headed back to firelink shrine, and when I walked into the pool area, there was this noise like some giant monster snoring, but couldn't see anything. :dread:

I was about to head down to the depths, when I realised I still have black knights to fight in both undead burg and parish, so will probably go back to both of those.

Also started upgrading my claymore. I know weapon upgrades are supposed to be the way to go, as they scale, so some you can carry through the whole game, but is it the same for armour? Should I be upgrading that too, or am I better off swapping to later game pieces?

I seem to remember armour upgrades were negligible. Better to use the resources on weapons.

biggest benefit of armour upgrades for me was always poise, but it depends what you are starting with really

if resources are tight Id choose weapons any day

Saw a bit of Falsey playing this on Twitch and wanted to let everyone know he came this close to getting owned by the moonlight butterfly :dread:

(Nice stream pal, good luck upgrading your fist :toot: )

These ghosts in new Londo ruins are doing my head in, especially the ones that just seem to have loads more health for no reason, and I can't seem to find a bonfire in there anywhere. :x

There's a back entrance to that area, I think the area is called the Valley of Drake's or something, it's the place with all the dragons.

Thing is, I think you get the key for it from the red guy in the New Londo Ruins. So you probably will have to fight at least a ways into it.

I didn't enjoy New Londo Ruins either, particularly after I accidentally killed the guy in red who sells the transient curse item that lets you attack the ghosts! :fp:
